Manley's Tuesday arrest came just a day after his father provided The Enquirer with the warrant that granted state agents the authority to attach a Global Positioning System device to track his son's truck.
Manley is the brother of Dana Rhoden, 37, who was killed in the massacre on April 22, 2016.

Her teenage children, Hanna and Christopher Jr., were among the seven other victims found at four homes. He said he's fed up with the 13 months of scrutiny and thinks the Global Positioning System device was put on his son's truck after agents found a text message sent from his son's phone to Jake Wagner, a former boyfriend of victim Hanna Rhoden.
